Connect to your pc and make a back up then when you get the fixed phone copy your files over, dunno if it will work but worth a look

They shouldn't need to wipe the phone to fix the screen, they probably just want to send a replacement phone instead of fixing yours.

Is it stock, or do you have root access? I know you said you saved the numbers to the phone, but have you set it to save contacts to google too? If so, you could just log into google on the computer and get to them all still.

As for accessing the phone, you can get a lead which allows you to plug it into the tv, maybe you'd be able to view your phone with one of those?

You need to interact with the screen on the phone to even connect it to the pc via USB though, so I'm not sure that'll work. Also, the only thing you'll be able to see is the contents of the SD card. Numbers are saved to it's internal memory instead, which you can't get to without root access or some clever backup utility which forces it's way in.

same reason you check a cars oil level regardless if a garage has serviced it in case of any problems
